Salcra has paid out RM295 million in dividends to more than 16,000 landowners in Sarawak, according Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu at Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) appreciation dinner on Sunday.

But that, said Jabu did not stop certain Dayak non-governmental organisations criticising the roles of Sarawak Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (Salcra) in developing Native Customary Rights (NCR) land.

These NGOs criticism he said “ignorance and plain disrespect for the truth. “The truth according to Jabu was that the land development undertaken by Salcra targeted at improving the income level of the rural community.

Salcra projects he said, apart from the monetary benefit, had given the rural to enjoy infrastructure facilities like roads, bridges and water supply that come along with the project.
